RDH, Norwich, NY - July 7, 2015
Greeted mentally and physically disabled patients. Updated and reviewed medical history with care givers. Made patient feel comfortable in the dental chair/clinical setting. Oral cancer screening. Explained to patients what was I was doing. Educated patient on at home care and demonstrated with patient how to perform the oral hygiene instructions. Took quality radiographs. Some patients had GI tubes and weren't able to transfer from their wheel chairs. This made it more difficult to treat them. There were patients that loved to come have their teeth cleaned and wanted to do better. They would leave feeling like they were doing a good job with their home care. I was rewarding to see how excited they were to come back and when they left feeling good about themselves. My co-workers were excellent. We all worked together and were a great team. The only reason I left this company is because it was a per-diem position and I needed more hours to support my family.
